Where's Patrick Wayne when you need him?

Per Cinescape.com: “Director Rob Cohen and producer Neal Moritz have cast Keanu Reeves to star in The 8th Voyage of Sinbad for Columbia Pictures. The story will be set in eighth-century China, Sinbad (Reeves) and his shipmates embark on a quest to find the Lamp of Aladdin. Along the way, they meet a beautiful empress and battle fantastical creatures as well as a rebellious Chinese general who threatens the kingdom with his supernatural powers.”

Just to kick things off: “Sin-bad?! Don’t you mean, ‘Act’ Bad?!” Or: [In Keanu voice] “Wait…A roc in Iraq? Whoa!”

Actually, there’s a whole Who’s On First bit there:

“And so, Mighty Sinbad, you must go to Iran to find the treasure, but beware, it is guarded by a roc.”
“Who’s guarding it?”
"A roc.”
"Wait, you said the treasure is in Iran.”
"Yes, Sahib.”
"But who’s guarding it?”
"A roc.”
"What, the whole country?”
"No, Sahib. Just a roc. However, and I’m sure you will understand, when I saw a roc I ran…”
"But weren’t you in Iran?”
"Yes, Sahib.”
"Then how did you run from Iraq?”

Later:
"So you got the map in another country?”
"Yes, Siam.”
"'You are’ what?”
And so on.
